I saw that MOveOn had a number of Bake Sales in the Philly area, most inside the city, for that Saturday. I asked for abner's professional assistance. She took the concept and professionally made the "KERRY'S WAFFLE HOUSE" sign, one letter per yellow block and added a tag line below "FREE FLIP FLOP WITH EVERY WAFFLE". It was about four foot by two and a half foot. Looks great.
Anyway, that Saturday morning, after reading of all the geeks that would be at Moby's restaurant, I figured, let's "Go Downtown" to the heart of enemy held territory. While in transit, I called kristinn who passed along my plans to firebrand. Since I have no long term memory, and left my address book behind, kristinn was vital to the cause.
The lower tunnel was backed up about 40 minutes it seemed. Once in Manhattan, it took 30 minutes to find it in the maze of lower Manhattan. Basically got into the general area and started a square search till I hit a street I knew was close to the event. Passed it almost immediately and I found a place to park without having to pay, THEIR VIP PARKING!!!!
I'm "combat loaded" so what I need is on top of the heap. I park, grab and I'm lost in the crowd. Hiding in plain sight. I turn the corner and decide to stay across the narrow street and just past the entrance. That way the entire line and those inside have a view of "KERRY'S WAFFLE HOUSE".
People are on the same side watching what's going on across the street and some are sitting on steps. A few pull typically liberal stunts.
I girl and a guy are watching and he's grinning. She makes a comment about my shirt that seems to be a "MEAN PEOPLE SUCK" shirt. The comment is meant to deman me, but I move over the vest I'm wearing to expose the word "DEAN'S" which makes it now read "DEAN'S MEAN PEOPLE SUCK" and she liteally has a spasm, a violent, very pronounced spasm.
I say, "You're not a Dean supporter are you?" and she shoots me a glare that screams almost as loudly as Howie, "YES!!!" So I say, "You ARE a Dean suppoeter....let me make you feel at home....YeeeeOOOOWWWWWWW"
Her date laughs out loud and his chances for something-something that evening are now nothing-nothing.
